Public Services Management Act 1995

Public Service Act Amended

The Act now requires public servants to resign 12 months before contesting in elections, and restricts them from entering public service for 5 years after contesting.

Minister for Public Service, Joe Sungi, in the second reading speech for the Amendments to the Public Services Management Act said the State had to draw the line so the public service can operate on its own without the interference of those public servants who wish to contest the elections.
